Success! 3-1 in CFB last week and 2-1 in the NFL (stupid Giants kicking a FG late in the game caused the Falcons not to cover 4). All in all, it was a great week in making some money. You know the drill, let’s start with College Football:
DolphinsTalk Gambling Corner Week 8
Wisconson (-3.5) @ Northwestern
I believe Jonathan Taylor is arguably the best RB in the nation right now. That is enough for me to watch them cover against Northwestern. Last year, he ran 19 times for 80 yards for 2 TDs, expect that same number today.
TCU @ Kansas OVER 48
I see a game here that can go over in the first half. both teams can score and both defenses are not very good. Expect TCU to win, but take the over in this game.
South Florida (+9) @ Houston
A battle in the American conference features the 2 best teams. South Florida and Houston is a game that will likely be a shootout. I like South Florida getting more than a touchdown on the road against a division rival. This game will determine the if either team is legit going forward.
Boise St (-10) @ Air Force – LOCK PICK OF THE WEEK
Boise has all the offensive tools to turn this into a blowout. Covering 10 against an Air Force team that struggles in conference games this year. I just don’t see them having an answer for Brett Rypien. Take Boise in a LOCK.
Season Record 18-10
Browns (+8.5) @ Steelers
The Browns and Steelers tied in their first meeting. Big Ben has been a turnover machine against the Browns (3 INT, 2 Fumbles lost). Albeit, it is now Mayfield starting for the Browns and not the dynamic runner in Tyrod Taylor. Expect a close, smashmouth AFC North game. Browns should cover.
Colts (-3) @ Raiders
Raiders have traded away Khalil Mack and Amari Cooper. Derek Carr has lost confidence from Gruden and the team. Their best player on offense is now Jared Cook. Andrew Luck is playing great a year removed from a major shoulder injury. This should be a blow out, but the Colts will cover the 3 points.
Patriots (-14) @ Bills
I don’t think I need to type much for this one. Brady vs Derek Anderson. Bills have a historically bad offense. And nobody has been stopping the Patriots. Easy win.
